The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has accused Ukraine (the authorities of Viktor Yanukovych's presidency – 112 International.) of numerous human rights violations during the Maidan protests. This is stated on the court's website.

The ECHR unanimously ruled that the authorities deliberately used ill-treatment and the state must be held accountable for killing the protester in the following cases: Shmorgunov and Others v. Ukraine (applications no. 15367/14 and 13 others), Lutsenko and Verbytskyy v. Ukraine (12482/14 and 39800/14), Kadura and Smaliy v. Ukraine (42753/14 and 43860/14), Dubovtsev and Others v. Ukraine (21429/14 and 9 others), and Vorontsov and Others v. Ukraine (58925/14 and 4 others).

Thus, Ukraine is accused of conducting multiple violations of Article 3 (prohibition of torture and inhuman and degrading treatment) of the European Convention on Human Rights, multiple violations of Article 5 §§ 1 and 3 (right to liberty and security), multiple violations of Article 11 (freedom of assembly and association), a violation of Article 2 (right to life), and a violation of Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life).

As we reported earlier, Kyiv's Pechersk district court failed to make the decision on choosing the pre-trial restriction for Viktor Yanukovych, who is the defendant in the Maidan case.
